Daily Twitter Notes

Sometimes the day does not allow a blog post let alone write about things on my mind or I hear about like economic, political, local news (sports too).

With Twitter, you at least get some of the flavor, a flash moment during the day, of what I am thinking about. You can follow during the day or see the digest below.

Here are the highlights of my recent Twitter activity. If you want to see the full version click MN Headhunter on Twitter

MN Headhunter on Twitter | December 7, 2008 - December 2, 2008 (last one first, links added):

December 7, 2008

  • Hello Minneapolis. Snow on the ground. Area drivers appear to be learning how to drive on it. Left Kansas CIty 37 degrees. Minneapolis 15
  • A few MN friends called me a whiner for talking about the weather in Kansas City last night. Now I see why. It's f'ing cold here.
  • Now looking up gas prices to maximize our purchasing power. Looks like Owatonna winds with upper $1.50's KC was $1.39. Most of Iowa $1.69
  • Between Mason City and the border. No, knowing we are "almost" to the border does not help.
  • My buddy keeps on showing where we are on his Blackberry and GPS. Is this the digital version of, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"
  • Heading back to Minneapolis. Had a good time except of the cold weather last night and not close game between Oklahoma and Missouri

  • Hello Kansas City, road construction and rush hour traffic
  • Missouri short on highway funds? I ask because right lane on this part of I 35 has a 3 ft wide repave strip. But not the whole lane.
  • CNBC: Huge Job Losses Could Be Signal That Worst Is Over
  • Minnesota Recruiters supporting Second Harvest Heartland. To learn more and link to donation page go to www.minnesotarecruiters.com
  • Not being over adventerous we chose the modern rest stop.
  • Another Iowa observation. Sign says Rest Area ahead. Another sign says Modern Rest Area 19 more miles. What amenities does this one have?
  • Just passed a sign: Huge Safe Sale. And I am wondering. Are only the big ones on sale or is it a big sale?
  • Hello Des Moines
  • Next to rest stop is a sign that says Prairie Area. WTF, why a designated place for a prairie area? The whole damn state is a prairie area
  • Who in the Twin Ctities wants to be in a good news TV piece about hiring? Are you hiring FT staff? Send an email ASAP paul@mnheadhunter.com
  • On the road to Kansas City for the Big XII Championship game. Just crossed into Iowa feeling a little out of place. Iowa has a funk about it
  • Jobs report: College degree stays at 3.1%
  • Jobs report: Under/unemployed is 12.5% from 11.8%
  • Jobs Report: CRAP -535,000. Unemployment rate at 6.7% October revised from -240,000 to -320,000
